The energy of Anil Kapoor and his nephew Arjun Kapoor was infectious during the trailer launch of Anees Bazmee's upcoming film Mubarakan when they shook a leg on Punjabi wedding music.

They bring the same kind of energy to this Firstpost exclusive interview by Vikram Thapa. Anil, who has done double roles in films like Kishen Kanhaiya, confesses that he did not give any tips to Arjun who plays a double role in Mubarakan. In fact, it is Arjun and Anil's children, Sonam and Harshvardhan, who end up giving tips to the veteran actor.

Arjun, who has done a double role in Aurangzeb previously, says that the experience was quite different this time given that the two characters had to share the frame in most of the scenes and the fact that there was an ensemble cast along with him.

Watch the video for more as they discuss the experience of working each other for the first time along with why they love Anees Bazmee's brand of films. They even end up pulling each other's leg at several interesting points during the interview.

Mubarakan also stars Rathna Pathak Shah, Rahul Dev, Ileana D'Cruz and Athiya Shetty. It is slated to release on 28 July.
